Framed Farmers Insurance Co. memorabilia

Ruth Stroup’s friend Steve Nicholls of Nicholls Construction gave her some treasures from his in- laws attic. Packets of needles from the 1930’s made in West Germany. They are for “home, farm and camping”. You darn your sox while camping, right? Ruth asked me to frame them. I recalled I had a hand painted 1920’s frame with tiny cast flowers adorned with bronze powder. It has the original convex glass. I had been saving it for 10 years and this was the perfect opportunity to pass it on to my pal Ruth. Since we had two packets of needles I could show the inside and outside of the folder side by side. These pristine examples of promo history are mounted on a blue silk backing. You can’t see but the back is sealed with hand made red paper.
